ALLENSEEMS VEIiV CONFIDENT Maine Democratic TactIcs---NebraMka Deaalnck KepablioftD victory i in Kansas. j ! Special to The Chronicle. Washington, Jan. 6. Secretary Fos ter does not expect to be called upon to issue any bonds to get gold for the treas- ury between now and March 4th. It will be necessary. In the three weeks during which $12,000,000 have been sent abroad, all of which was taken from the treasury, he says : "I have had the off set of $8,000,000 accumulation. The gold in the treasury when the high ship ments began amounted to $125,000,000. While I have not made any promises to get any more gold in the treasury on March 4th tha'n $120,000,000, I believe that the shipments of gold to Europe will be lighter from the 1st, and that it is within the possibilities of the situa tion to leave $125,000,000 for my succes sor to control. While I ehall not utilize the provisions of the resumption act of 1875, which went into effect on Jan. 1st, 1879, there is no doubt among the legal councellors of the government that the secretary of the treaeury is empowered under this law to sell bonds to secure gold whenever it becomes necessary to maintain resumption. The maintenance of the credit of the government has ' al ways been thought best subserved by paying lwnds in gold, and that will un doubtedly continue the custom." President Harrison Failing. Washington, Jan. 6. Friends of President Harrison, who have had occa sion to see and talk with him of late, are very much concerned about his con dition, and express a fear that his health will break down before the close of his administration. The long series of unfortunate mishaps to the president and members of bis family have had a very depressing effect upon him. Tiie death of his wife, to whom he was pecul iarly devoted, was a blow from which he has not rallied in the slightest de gree, and it left him quite unable to withstand the ill fortune that has since followed him and the other inmates of the White House. He is considerably annoyed at present by the importuni ties of many of his personal friends who arc anxious to be provided for in some way before their benefactor goes out of office. It is said that the president's health is the chief argument used by his friends to have him accept the overtures made by the Stanford university. Washington Senatorial - Contest. Olympia, Jan. 5. Nothing new has transpired regarding the senatorial con test. Senator Allen arrived yesterday and feels confident of victory, while the friends of Judge Turner are equally sure of winning. Very few -delegates have arrived as yet. It is expected that nearly all will be here by Saturday, wnen things will lase a more dennite shape. Attempt to Unseat Republicans. Augusta, Me., Jan. 5. It is stated an effort will be made by leading democrats to have certain republican members of the legislature unseated under the sec tion of the new ballot law which forbids any candidate to act as an election officer. - The Kebrasks Deadlock. Lincoln, Neb., 'Jan. 5. The house is ready to canvass the vote on the state election, but can do nothing else till the senate, which is still deadlocked, organ izes and meets with the house in joint session for that purpose. , Republican Victory In Kansas. Topeka, Kan., Jan. 5. The supreme court this afternoon decided the Stubbs Rosenthal legislative contest in favor of Stubbs, republican. This virtually in sures republican organization in the house. . Met In Joint Session. Helena, Mont., Jan. 5. The legisla ture met in joint session this morning, and listened to Governor Rickards' ad dress. The vote for United States sen ator will be taken January 17. JUSTICE IX CHICAGO. A Jury GetH a Wholesome Reprimand and is Fined. Chicago, Jan 6. Special. There is a great deal of instruction to be got out of the incident in Judge Brentano's court room yesterday morning, wherein certain factions and ill-advised jarymen received a tongue-lashing they will not soon forget. In a suit for damages for the death of a child that sagacious body returned a verdict finding the defand ants responsible for the death and fixing the damages therefor at one cent. This is suggestive ; but wait. With the ver dict handed in was a copy of a requisi tion made by nine of the jurors last Thursday for a case of beer, two quarts of whisky, a box of cigars, three decks of cards, a dozen bottles of ale and din ner for twelve. With this festal outlay, purchased at the public expense, it had been the jurors' intention to grapple with a problem involving a question of human life. .In this easy and jocular manner they had meant to dispatch the solemn duties to which they were sworn. It is bard to eay which is most amazing, the astounding impudence of the thing or the abject confession it implies of a total disregard of trust and of the sacred ness of human lite. Jtodge Brentano's excoriation of the culprits was about us sharp and cutting as might be, but none too severe for the offense. The fines administered to the jurors, with their discharge, were in comparison mild to bear. If the object lesson will prevail in preventing other jurors with a dis torted sense of humor, from stultifying the proceedings of justice in similar fashion it will have beenr highly salutary. Willing to Compromise. Washington, Jan. 5. Cleveland has informed several democrats in congress, who come nearest to representing his views on the financial questions, and who are anxious to have the silver mat ter settled in some way as speedily as possible, that he would be content to have the bland act restored as a com promise, in consideration of the repeal of the Sherman act. How far he is using his influence to bring this about is un certain, but the men in congress who are interesting themselves in the matter are very hopeful of being able to effect a compromise. A Filthy Camp. Washington, Jan. 5. Surgeon-General Wyman has received a ' report from Surgeon Williams, sent to Little rock, Ark., to investigate the disease in the convict camp there. After describing the filthy condition of the' camp and sur roundings, he gives it as his opinion the deaths there were due either to poison or to contaminated water, due to over crowding, probably the latter. A Prospect of War.- Panama, Jan. 5. The boundary ques tion between Costa Rica and Nicaragua has been reopened. There is a prospect of war between the countries in conse quence. A body of Costa l-lican soldiers have taken possession of tho territory claimed by Nicaragua, an ultimatum which the latter country is not disposed to agree with. She is preparing to de fend her rights. . The Thames Froien Over. A London dispatch says the weather has been very windy for several days. Much ice .formed in the Thames. Traf fic above and lelow Loudon .bridge is much impeded by pack ice. The upper river is frozen over. Blaine Still Improving. Washington, Jan. 5.

Americas Fleeced in Austria A Vienna dispatch eaj-a a warrant was issued here for the arrest of Roederer, a pretended journalist, who is accused of swindling-John S.

COMPARED WITH THAT OF ENGLAND A Simple Statement Upon a Some' What Complex Subject. ' REP. GKEKNLEAF INTERVIEWED. After Scaling the Ll8t From Wheneet Mast Come the Revenue to Sleet Oar Millions. Special to The Chronicle. Washington, Jan. 6. The question of an extra session is discussed everywhere. Last evening a few were talking over the situation when the inquiry was made direct of representative Greenleaf of New York : "What does England pay duty on? I understand there are only about seven articles from which that nation receives revenue." The answer was plain and eimple, in substance. "Tobacco, tea, rum, brandy and other spirits, wine, currents, coffee, raisins and a few minor articles that amount to little in the re ceipts. That is thelist. The- entire revenue from customs duties amounts to about $100,000,000 a year. About $120,000,000 more comes frcjru the tax on beer, on railways and from licenses. Then there are the probate duty, the legacy duty the house duty, the income and property tax, and other sources of revenue mainly taking the form of stamped documents, etc. The fonrchief sources of income are the excise, customs, stamps, and income and property tax, in. the order named." - The study of this plan of raising revenue is of very great interest to the people of this country now because it has a charm for many of the leaders of the democratic party. Our enormous cus toms duties are to be whittled down, if we can believe the declarations of the ardent reformers who are tilting" at the McXinley law. Free sugar has come and will remain. Free wool, free lum ber, free tin-plate and other articles are . to follow, with a general scaling of tariffs on manufactured products, which yet may be as well protected as before, be cause of the granting of free raw materials. But. whence will come the revenue to pay the many millions for pensions, for river and harbor laws, the cost of new battleships and of elaborate coast defenses, which a nation with not an enemy this side of the planet Mara still thinks it must have. Prepare for a. large increase in the internal revenue tax on whisky; ' Prepare for a deter mined effort to establish an income tax and a tax on inheritances. Prepare for a lively agitation by Congressman Tom Johnson and others of that ilk in favor of a tax on lands. The old order changeth. .Will the people take kindly to these new ideas? That remains to be seen. - Miuixter Lincoln to Resign. Chicago, Jan. 5. It is understood that the resignation of Minister to Eng land Robert T. Lincoln will be one of the first to be placed at the disposal of Pres ident Cleveland after bis inauguration. It developed today that during his re cent vacation in this country the son . of Old Abe made arrangements to resume his law practice by the opening of the world's fair, and it is stated by friends that he expects a democrat in his place so as to enable him to get back in Amer ica by the end of April. This will prob ably be the first diplomatic plum at the disposal of the president. Homesteaders Raising Money. A member of the advisory committee of Homestead, Pa., has been in Cincin nati some days raising funds to prose cute officials of the Carnegie company. Similar appeals are being made in other large cities. It is intended to raise $30, 000 for the purpose.
